How to deploy Java JRE7u5 32 bit to 64 bit machines as system account using KACE


Trying to install Java JRE1.7.0_05 using a K1000 appliance fails.

Running the application manually as system using psexec or other means also fails.


Start the jre-7u5-windows-i586.exe program manually.  Browse to where it has extracted the temp files (C:\users\<someuserprofile>\appdata\locallow\sun or similar).

Zip together the jre1.7.0_05.msi and Data1.cab files (you can cancel the started installation after this).  Associate the zip file with the jre1.7.0_05 software resource in the K1000.

Click on the Scripting menu, then the Configuration Policy tab, and select MSI Installer Wizard.

Action:               Install

Software:           Java(TM) 7 Update 5 (7.0.50)

User interaction: Silent

ALLUSERS=1:    Checked

After Install:       Delete Files

Logging:            Error Messages

Log File Name:    Whateveryou want.log


  • Thank you for this, I was having the same issues and this solved it! - Mlib 12 years ago
  • That's the same workaround I used when I deployed Java 7u4 32-bit to my Win7 x64 machines, had to use it for 7u5 as well.

  • This is not working for me after following the above steps and the options are different in my K1000 since I recently updated. The log says it deployed fine, but Java isn't installed when I check. - ACAST 12 years ago
  • In Kace I was able to deploy the MSI with the following command:

    msiexec.exe /i "jre1.7.0_05.msi" /qn

    be sure to check Don't Prepend msiexec.exe It needs to be entered in the command or it wont run correctly. - ohiosoundguy 11 years ago
    • This worked great for me on Java 7 update 65. - supercompact 9 years ago
  • I'd like to add that I was able to use this process on Java 7 Update 9 by changing the Installation Command to Manually Configured and using this: msiexec /passive /i [package].msi

    I was unable to get the /quiet to work with this msi package.

    I also created custom Software Inventory items for both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions and uploaded the .zip file to each so that I don't have to install the 32-bit version to 64-bit PCs. - retro77 11 years ago
